Since graduating art school in Calgary, Alberta in 1987 I have worked to develop my skills in representational painting and drawing which are the only mediums I work in.  Portraiture is a large component of my studio practice but not the only one as I enjoy most genres of painting. 

I enjoy a very quiet life on the outskirts of Calgary devoted to the study and practice of art and the symbolic language systems of Tarot and Astrology. Commissioned portraiture is a large part of my studio practice and I am happy to work with all sorts of clients especially those who are interested in works that includes spiritual content informed by my studies.  I also have a particular interest in antique photos and am very happy to make paintings using photos from all eras as reference material.

You can learn more about my artwork on my studio blog  here
